"80% reduction in the use of chemical pesticides"
Israel: New plant protector based on vegetal oil protects plants against pests and fungal diseases
The product was developed by the Israeli ARO (Agricultural Research Organization), during the last 5 years together with the Israeli laboratory "Agro Shelef". According to Agro Shelef, the experience accumulated in Israel on over 200 ha of beef and cherry tomatoes, strawberries and other crops, brought about an up to 80% reduction in the use of chemical pesticides.
This success has led to a current large-scale experimentation project throughout Israel in commercial production of citrus and 300 ha of cucumbers. Some of the crops in which "Tamar-Tech" has demonstrated its beneficial effects are: tomato, bell-pepper, cucumber, zucchini, aubergine, strawberry, flowers, herbs and citrus.
The main arthropods controlled in vegetables and fruit trees are various spider-mites, including Red Spider-mite (Tetranychus urticae), different aphids, greenflies, whiteflies, e.g. Bemisia tabaci, mealy bugs, and thrips. The main fungal diseases currently controlled by "Tamar-Tech" are Oidium, Oidiopsis and alternaria.
